Okay, so it doesn’t actually fly, but it sure looks like a flying saucer, don’t you think? It even has little fold-out landing legs! (Actually, I think maybe it was separated at birth from this thing from Star Wars. Or maybe one of those robots from WALL-E? But I digress.)
This is in reality the OO wireless projector as imagined by designer David Riesenberg. The idea is that it’s the ultimate in projection simplicity, thanks to its sleek, circle-shaped design and its super-portability. It’s powered by an internal Li-Ion battery, allowing it to project for up to 3 hours straight, though it also has a built-in power cord.
Let’s look at some specs. It’ll display high-def video or data at full 1080p resolution, it has its own internal SSD storage capacity, and it’s WiFi enabled so it can stream directly from your computer or any other WiFi source. Riesenberg recommends one use for the OO as an external or secondary display.
As for controlling the device, what else would you expect from something so futuristic but a sexy touchscreen remote control? (And of course, the remote also looks like it could be a spaceship, too.) The whole package has enough exquisite curves and design cool factor to have Steve Jobs mopping up his own drool. All it needs now is the ability to hover.
Unfortunately it’s just a concept at the moment, so you may have to wait a while to get your hands on one. But something this gorgeous deserves to go into production.
Watch Riesenberg’s slick promotional video, and you might just think the darn thing has a soul…
